Il Faut Oser (You Have to Dare) is a portrait of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth. With a background of fading stars representing the current political debate within the UK, the figure of Her Majesty The Queen stands out as a symbol of stability and strength, showing that even in the most uncertain times, it is crucial to never lose sight of the bigger picture.

This work follows Carolina Piteira's unique approach to painting where the artist focuses on the intensification of character and balances a spirit of energy with the seriousness of the subject.

Graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of East London, Carolina Piteira draws upon her personal experiences and themes of modern society to depict portraits, faces, expressions and interactions of subjects that interact with the viewer on a personal level.
